Mark Poolos was born and raised in Edina, Minnesota. To start his career he co-starred in two independent films "Attack of the Killer Snow Cone Zombies" and "Joanie Loves Furbies". He did more films, some commercials and some theater but it wasn't enough, so he began his stand-up comedy career. Mark stands 6'7", weighs in at 350 and technically a giant, however, he is very weak and a wimp. In his routines he weaves story of his life as a bumbling jolly giant in his fast engaging story telling style.
Mark has been featured on FOX's Laughs on FOX, TruTV's the Carbonaro Effect, AxsTV's Gotham Comedy Live, WGN; can be heard on Sirius XM and the Bob and Tom Radio Show and has participated in several comedy festivals across Northern America including the Laughing Skull Comedy Festival. He has been compared to Louie Anderson. Mark is a true road dog, performing in 40 states and all across Canada. Mark's ultimate dream is to do a film that people will have actually seen.
